27th June 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, June 27, 2013: : IBM today announced that Mother Teresa Women’s University is using IBM analytics solution to promote academic success by training their management students on predictive analysis and reporting solutions.

The use of analytics or Big Data has changed the realm of technology. Big Data is requiring new skills, knowledge and kinds of decision-making in every role and every profession. The three-month long course, designed by IBM for the university enables educators to teach effectively, helps management students to gain critical analytical skills, and supports more accurate and insightful institutional research and decision-making.

Mother Teresa Women’s University is a public university, established in 1984, offers consultancy services, and promotes research studies for Women. The university is using IBM’s analytical software, SPSS (Statistical Products and Service Solutions), to train their management students on predictive analysis and reporting solutions and to promote academic success.

IBM SPSS is a comprehensive, easy to use set of data and predictive analytics tool for users, analysts and programmers. The software offers flexible, affordable options that help colleges and universities easily integrate statistical analysis, data and text mining and survey research instruction into the classroom.

N. Kala, Registrar, Mother Teresa Women’s University, said, In today’s technology-driven world, we need to enhance curriculum planning by tailoring courses to different styles of learning. With the IBM solution, we will be able to better equip students with essential analytical skills to effectively transition into the professional world. IBM being the leader that offers flexible, affordable IT solutions would help our institution to easily integrate statistical analysis, data and text mining and survey research instruction capabilities into the classrooms for the benefit and growth of our management students.”

Jyothi Satyanathan, Director, Midmarket and Inside Sales, IBM India/South Asia, said, “IBM has the broadest set of skills and knowledge of the industry – from technical skills to industry skills in areas such as data architects to statisticians. IBM is working with over 200 universities around the world specifically in the area of expanding and strengthening analytics curricula to meet the growing demand of highly skilled big data business workers of the future.”

There is a growing demand of skills on Big data and Analytics mixed with Business and management education. Consulting firm McKinsey estimates that India would need 2 lakh data scientists in the next few years. IBM works on academic initiatives that helps build strategic relationships with universities and colleges and assists them to develop consistent, high quality curricula for leading and emerging technologies.

What’s unique about IBM’s initiatives is that IBM works with universities to merge business and IT skills. Well beyond technology donation, IBM works very closely with professors in support of curriculum materials, project-focused case studies for students to gain hands-on experience in analytics, and IBM provides thought leaders as guest speakers, as well as faculty awards to accelerate program development.

Given that data and information are the latest frontier for competitive differentiation, students will now be able to use information added with intelligence to gain competitive insights. This partnership between IBM and Mother Teresa Women’s University will help train the students to make smarter decisions, solve complex business problems and improve outcomes.
